A Trust Fund for Victims, separate from the International Criminal Court, was created in 2004 by the Assembly of States Parties, in accordance with article 79 of the Rome Statute. The Trust Fund's mission is to support and implement programs that address harms resulting from genocide, crimes of humanity, and war crimes. To achieve this mission, the Trust Fund for Victims has a two-fold mandate: (i) to implement Court-Ordered reparations and (ii) to provide physical, psychological, and material support to victims and their families. By assisting victims to return to a dignified and contributory life within their communities, the TFV contributes to realizing sustainable and long-lasting peace by promoting restorative justice and reconciliation.
